Problems Port Forwarding

[ Edited ]
Alright. Sooo... Couple weeks ago, my router decided to become stupid. So I hard reset it. I reconfigured to everything like it was before. Now I can't reforward my ports. And it doesn't like my static ip.

I think it is that my dsl modem still connects when I go to 192.168.1.1 . To go to my router config page, the ip thing is 192.168.2.1 .

Any help? I will try to give you any information that will help you. Internet Provider: Centurytel
Router: Linksys WRT54GS with latest Firmware

Please list all the static LAN IP addresses that you are using.
 
Linksys has some strict rules about assigning fixed LAN IP addresses.  You need to carefully follow these rules:
 
Rules for using fixed LAN IP addresses on Linksys routers:

With Linksys routers, a fixed (static) LAN IP addresses must be assigned in the device that is using the address. So you need to enter the fixed address in the computer or printer, not in the router.

When using a Linksys router, any fixed LAN IP address must be outside the DHCP server range (typically 192.168.1.100 thru 192.168.1.149), and it cannot end in 0, 1, or 255.

Therefore any fixed LAN IP address would normally need to be in the range of
192.168.1.2 thru 192.168.1.99 or
192.168.1.150 thru 192.168.1.254
assuming you are still using the default DHCP server range.

Also, in the computer, when you set up a static LAN IP address, you would need to set the "Subnet mask" to 255.255.255.0 and the "Default Gateway" to 192.168.1.1 and "DNS server" to 192.168.1.1

It is also important that no two devices on your network be set to the same static LAN IP address.
 
P.S.  Note that the above rules were written for those using the default router "Local IP address"  of 192.168.1.1 .   Since you are using 192.168.2.1 , then change all above 192.168.1.x  addresses to  192.168.2.x  addresses.

Thanks for a lot of the unneeded information that I already knew. But then again, I did not state that I knew a majority of this.

The Static ip i was using was 192.168.2.105

I have set up my static ip, but my port still isn't forwarded. I have done everything I have known to do, and what www.portforward.com says to do for the program I am running that needs the port forwarded.

Re: Problems Port Forwarding

Do you have your DHCP server turned on?
 
If you are not using the DHCP server range of 192.168.2.100  thru  192.168.2.149  then please state your DHCP server range.

Re: Problems Port Forwarding

Provide static IP outside DHCP range to which ports are to be forwarded.

Alright. I have talked to my ISP and I fixed the modem part. Now my router still will not say it is open.

The port is 15779.

The static ip is 192.168.2.123

Re: Problems Port Forwarding

Hi csjo00... What you need to do is to check if the port is forwarded using the website ... http://T1shoppers.com/portscanner .... If port is not forwarded try to upgrade the firmware of the router .... after upgrade ...reset & reconfigure the router ...

Re: Problems Port Forwarding

It looks like you are using illegal fixed LAN IP addresses.  You mentioned using 192.168.2.105   and  192.168.2.123.
 
If these are within your DHCP server range, then they are illegal.
 
Any fixed LAN IP address must be outside the DHCP server range.  You need to fix this problem, then see if it helps with your port forwarding problem.
